I have the Joystick on my 190. It came with the boat from the PO. I like the tower although I would would have like to have it mounted a little further forward on my boat, to line up with the windshield.

I would never try and turn my 190 into a wake boat but when you spend all day on the water with a young family the tower is invaluable!!!!! The 190 is a small boat and having that extra bit of room when towing the little ones on the tube is great. Also for training purposes for new boarders it is a huge help in my opinion.

I say go for it!!!!!

From the less expensive standpoint, I like the Joystick tower's clean look.

I agree. If you must have a tower on a 190, that pic in the first post looks great. Simple, flows well. And remember, if you plan on keeping it for awhile, which it sounds like so, re-sell value shouldn't be the kicker. Usefullness and functionality for YOU should be the seller. You cannot predict any type of boat value in 5 years. It's not a house.

MTK from monster is solid, mount it just behind the windshield and it wont get into the rope if your a skier. They also usually have some blems that you can get a reduced price, then have it powder coated to match your colors. Monster is a stand up company, and part of a pretty big group of marine suppliers including xtp, and Z-5 cargo to name a few. They will call you back and they stand behind their product.

If you have to deal with several boards in the boat, and the tower has a board rack - I can understand the tower adding storage capability. Boards don't fit too well under the bow of a PS.

I have a FlyHigh, we routinely carry 3-4 slalom skis, 2 boards and sometimes a tube along with 5-6 passengers in my Prostar. Can you say Beverly Hillbillies on the water? But the boat is paid for, fits in the garage when done and we have a great time.

I think the Joystick looks OK, but I would add some racks if I were installing one.

I just did a search for towers on PS190's and found this. I think its an Aerial Assault. Doesn't look bad. I have no idea about quality or price though.

It looks good. I think I saw one on onlyinboards and it was around $1400 or so.

To those with a joystick tower how hard is Laying the tower down? Is it something that can be done once a weekend to put it back in the garage? Or a huge pain? Thanks

I Leave A Ratchet In The Glove Box With A Hex Head Socket On It And It Takes Me 2 Minutes To Loosen The Bolts To Lay It Down. No Problem At All With The Joystick Tower
